Strong and Proud...New Prairie High School has maintained these characteristics for over 40 years. Although the faces have changed many times over among students and staff, the one constant factor has been the elements of tradition, blue and gold spirit, and a commitment to represent our community proudly.
With excellence in student achievement, New Prairie High School has become known for academic excellence. But even amongst our growth, NPHS's mindset and values have remained true to continued integrity, academic achievement, and extra-curricular participation and successes. Tradition is created; not inherited. 40 years ago, two communities, a dedicated group of educators, inspired students, and community members created a foundation, one strong enough to endure decades worth of change, new ideas, altered demographics, state-mandates, and phenomenal growth. Many staff members have built upon this foundation and have improved what NPHS offers its students; similarly, NPHS students have continued to "rise to the occasion" over the past 40+ years, striving to remain on top academically, athletically, and socially in campus activities, clubs, and community events.
Tradition is an amazing facet of education. It makes it harder to give up in times of trial. New Prairie High School is virtually on the "tipping point" in many areas and as a result, many new traditions have recently been established and will continue to develop as we work, and collaborate with staff members and students. NPHS is a remarkable place to spend four years learning, and a great place to make a difference for students. We strive for “a culture of excellence” as we intentionally prepare every student to have an array of viable options at the conclusion of their NPHS educational experience.
We take Loyalty, Pride and Dedication in everything we do.
We Are New Prairie!
